Triple-switchpoint analog prox

By Control Engineering Staff June 1, 2001

Florence, Ky. -M18 tubular style Ultralinear analog inductive prox features triple-switchpoints that can be setup anywhere along its 1 to 5 mm sensing range providing three distinct on/off switching windows. Each switchpoint has a dedicated output line and output on LED display to alert control when target is within operating window. The self-contained sensors eliinate eliminate the need for separate external analog switching devices. The sensors produce an analog sig-nal with a linear 0 – 10 V dc output propor-tional to the distance between sensor face and target. A teach-in procedure sets up each sensing ‘zone.’
